The program administers five majors:
All five majors include a common core of courses that ensures an interdisciplinary experience. At the same time, you will achieve depth in analytical ability by taking a specified suite of courses, usually in a particular discipline, chosen in consultation with your adviser.
If you are considering any of the five majors we urge you to consult with a member of the advisory committee during your first year.
You may also pursue a minor in environmental studies.
